Erling Haaland’s £63 million transfer to Manchester City is expected to be announced later this week.
After City paid the release clause in his Dortmund contract, the Norwegian striker, 21, will join Pep Guardiola’s side for the start of pre-season.
Last month, Sportsmail reported that City had reached an agreement with Haaland’s representatives, and that he will sign a five-year contract worth more than £500,000 per week, making him the Premier League’s highest-paid player.
Negotiations between City and Dortmund have been conducted and the Bundesliga club are expecting confirmation that the £63m fee will be paid to activate his release.
Haaland is one of the most prolific goalscorers in world football having scored 85 times in 88 appearances for Dortmund during two-and-a-half years there. He has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United in recent months but has opted for the reigning English champions.Click here to give us five stars rating!
